Student Parking and Drop Off Concerns

Parents, we are still having issues with people dropping off and picking up their students in front of the administration building.  This is not…I repeat…is not an authorized drop off/pick up area.  The front of the administration building needs to be kept cleared for emergency vehicles.  Please cooperate with us by utilizing the student parking pickup area or the south student car circle next to the auditorium.

Student’s over- flow parking area is the north lane of the teacher’s parking lot.  Any students parking in an unauthorized parking area will result is a disciplinary referral and possible revoking of driver’s privileges.    Parents please help us by reminding your student of this expectation.

Universal Breakfast Program
